I'm Real, Are You?

Mon Feb 3, 2014, 9:03 PM

UPDATE 21/02/2014:

So this journal literally got so full that it won't let me post anymore thumbnails XD I've created a second journal, so you guys can just keep adding your photos :D Also, there isn't a deadline for this, so just send in a pic when you're ready to <3

I'm Real, Are You? Pt 2UPDATE: 03/07/2014
My sister found this show called "Catfish" that was originally aired on MTV a while back. It's nothing new, since they're up to 3 seasons now, but I've only just started watching it with her.
I can almost not believe how many people are out there stealing identities and pretending to be other people and being in relationships with their fake persona's. I'm dumbfounded every time I watch an episode because it's amazing the lengths some go to to keep their facade up. :/
In any case, you guys should totally watch it. It shows everyone just how this type of behaviour really affects real life, everyday people.
********************************************************************************************************
So my last journal literally got so full, that it wouldn't show thumbnails anymore XD So I've created a second journal :3
Here's the original journal :heart:
*******************************************************************************
 Here's the second journal ^u^

********************************************************************************************************************************

EDIT: I realize many of you are asking as to why I am doing this. Why would I want to put my face on the internet with an insignificant sign that can't really prove who I am?

Because I wanted to create light to darkness, to help people know that you never have to stay the victim, you can be a survivor.

Please know that I am not hateful towards the offender, nor do I feel anger. I have dealt with my emotions, and have come to accept that what has happened cannot be changed. But maybe we can help to prevent incidents like this in the future, or at least make people aware of what happens.

Due to the nature of this story, I will not provide names, so DO NOT ASK.

This is a story that isn't about an art thief, or a computer bot, or someone with a pretend name...This is a story about someone who created a new life with lies and a face that was not theirs.

I was a victim and witness of an incident where a girl stole someone's photos from facebook, and created a life based on lies. They befriended people as this fake person, people confided deep and personal things to them, someone fell in love with them...but they weren't being themselves, they were pretending to be someone else completely. When it all got too much for them, they made their persona get sick for 3 months before they died. Myself and many others mourned and grieved the loss of a close friend for weeks only to find out they were never real, only 3 days ago.
 
I don't know the real reason behind it, but it ruined hundreds of Deviants. They was lonely and wanted more friends, but went about it a very wrong way. They executed it so well, that they created friends for their persona and then posted on all their profiles from their own real profile.
 
Stealing someone's face  and creating a life to it is not a game and it's not an OC. Please think about your actions before you do something that will affect people in ways that you cannot imagine. To trust someone is a gift and it's something that each and every one of us have to earn.
 
So why am I doing this? I'm just trying to help everyone who was affected, and even those who weren't, by knowing that not everyone has an agenda and there are real people who care about others on DeviantArt.
 
And I am one of them. Are you?

********************************************************************************************************************************

I came across a photo today that really jumped out at me. And in light of some situations that occurred in my life recently, I imediately decided it just made sense to pass it on and to do the same myself.

This is the photograph by :iconvintageshadow: :thumb217088697:

I want to do the same as him, and create my own photograph of myself with a hand written sign.

I think it's EXTREMELY important for my watchers to believe in me and who I am, because you guys are my family and my lifeline. Without you all, I would be a very lonely person.

It also pains me that in the current internet society, there are a lot of frauds and fakers, who pose to be people who they are not for multitudes of reasons. I want you all to know that I AM NOT one of those people. I am very much who I say I am and would never misrepresent myself no matter how much I disliked myself.

SO I'm going to create a little event out of this, and I'd really appreciate it if at least some of my watchers decided to take part in it.

Basically, just do the same as the photo above, and let everyone you care about know that you are REAL and that they don't have to be afraid about trusting you :heart:

Bring some faith back to DeviantArt and the internet! :hug:

ALSO My friend :iconwiccanwt: has started up a group, because she loved this idea so much! Check it out here: :iconimreal-areyou: Don't forget to add your username to your sign, otherwise your pic won't be accepted to the group :)

I'm not real. Reality is the transitional phase between leaving my house and coming home at night, to do things that matter to me. Reality is a boring concept of no value to me. Therefore, I'm not real.

If I'd have to define myself as belonging to a certain "way of thinking" I'd say that I'm an existential solipsist, in short meaning that I don't think that life in-itself has a meaning, and that I can know nothing outside of my own mind, i.e. I can never know if something other than my "self" is real or not, or if it exists. Having said this, I find it very amusing to see how people take words for granted. How can you possibly claim to know what reality is? Or even say that something 'is'? Reality can be defined in so many ways, whether rationally or empirically, scientifically or religiously... And yet no one can really tell you what it is. Lately I've been thinking about something that is the case with your story, and that is: what is it that constitutes our persona on the internet? Obviously it has something to do with information, but how we perceive information of the outside world and the web world is basically the same, through our senses and eventually through thought processes. In the end your own self is just a bunch of information, but in different form, manifested as your body. So does something, in order to exist, has to have a body, or a form? That is an interesting question, one must say. Clearly that's not the case here, because you could, to some extent, prove that it is indeed your self that is in the web. But it then raises a question, can consciousness exist in multiple forms, not just incarnated? I don't think that there's a simple answer to this, or if there even is one. Of course all this comes back to defining what it means to "exist", and what can be considered as 'being' or 'existing'. 

For myself, I don't think I'll ever know for certain these things, but I like to think about them nonetheless :) I know that this idea is not about all this, it's about helping people feel a bit more safe here. But let me tell you, you will never be safe on the internet :)

Such a fantastic idea and movement! If I didn't despise myself so much (I won't post any pictures of myself because of this) and the fact that no one who watches me actually cares who I am I would do the same thing. However, continue the good work!!!!!

Something almost exactly like this story happened to me two summers ago :I An ex-friend of mien created this whole story up in his sick head and created a person who my friend, boyfriend, and I thought were real. He caused so much tension between the three of us and came up with so many stories, told so many lies. He even came up with a story that she was abused by her parents and her boyfriend to the point he decided to kill her off. My friend and I cried for days thinking someone had actually lost a life to such horrible circumstances... but no. He had made the whole thing up in his sick head. 

I was the first to figure it out when some of his stories stopped making sense and I forced him to tell me the truth. I can't believe I trusted someone so much like that. I felt really stupid and ashamed... I just thought I'd share my similar story. I'm happy you're doing this <3
